The future of the Los Angeles Lakers and their stunning basketball legacy will have nothing to do with the fact they were swept out of the playoffs in humiliating fashion Sunday by the San Antonio Spurs. That fact hardly matters.
It will not revolve around whether Mike D'Antoni does or does not return, or what becomes of Kobe Bryant's Achilles tendon, or even where Dwight...
